My first post in 2021 also happens to be my 2000th wine in Delectable which, I guess is an achievement so we’re celebrating with some Bérêche. I believe this is the only wine in their incredible line-up that had, up until now, eluded me. Not any longer!
The 2016 Campania Remnsis pours a very pretty, pink/salmon color but the most remarkable aspect of the appearance is the gorgeous, everlasting mousse of this wine. It nearly carries a head! Pour after pour, the bubbles cover the disc for minutes before slowly beginning to dissipate, leaving a steady bead of bubbles for each glass. Initially, the nose was predominately cantaloupe (the delicious and juicy kind grown in sandy soils), raspberry, strawberry, baby roses, and salty sea breeze. After about an hour, however, the melon notes were replaced with Pink Lady apples and the faintest smell of a Cinnabon kiosk (no joke).
On the palate, this was so charming with Pink Lady apples, watermelon Jolly Rancher and chalky minerals.
As a complete package, the Campania Remesis is overwhelmingly fresh and full of excitement. Easily one of the more fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable pink champagnes I’ve had, ever. Disgorged March of 2020, Dosage 3.5g/l. 5318 bottles produced. — 9 months ago
Better than expected and quite nice for the price. — 2 months ago
Fresh apricot, pear, and lime zest. Mineral driven. Chablis like. Fresh with an appreciable yeasty feel. Underripe yellow orchard fruit. Solid length, finishes with minerality. Great QPR. — 6 months ago
A delicate copper color with a more than adequate amount of minuscule bubbles. It’s very lively with the creaminess coming later. The nose is subdued at first showing red cherries and yeast but after around half an hour you’ll start to get fresh roses and tangerine. Composed of Grand Cru grapes from Verzenay, the blend is 65/35 PN/CH with 15% of the Pinot coming from still wine.
The longer you spend with this sexy minx of a champagne, the more you’ll fall in love. Still displaying those strong Pinot characteristics hours later, it has settled into a state of approachable elegance. That’s what using up to 60% reserve wines will do for you. A multitude of red berries and tasty pastries absolutely sing. Exquisite minerality runs throughout. A long finish with more citrus and acid. Comparing this to other, larger Champagne houses does a disservice because this easily blows them away. — 8 months ago
I don’t recall why I bought this several years ago, but Emma finished her CFA exam and we needed to celebrate and this was the only champagne we had in the house. She was worth it and it was worth it!￼ — 7 months ago
Lovely and interesting 100% Chardonnay Champagne from a small producer. Aged in oak barrels lending aromas and flavors of vanilla, toasted brioche, toffee, and warm spices. More yellow than a typical Champagne due to the oak aging. A very interesting aperitif! — 8 months ago
